Just want to say, I am highly impressed with the content on your podcasts. I am a Civil Design Engineer based in Australia and like to listen a lot of varied technical content, to grow my intelligence while working. Alot of the material i find is hard to listen to but these podcasts are always interesting and thoroughly growing my understanding of what's happening in the EV world. Thanks for that and keep up the great work!!!
